Clif joined Fors Marsh Group (FMG) in 2019 to lead the company’s growing healthcare practice. He will lead internal teams and client accounts including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Before joining FMG, Clif was charged with developing requirements and proposal and business development for the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System for CMS. He worked with a mixed team of government professionals, Medicare contractors, and software maintainers with the goal of providing greater efficiencies in a system that processes $1.5T in payments per year. The result was one of the most successful commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems implementations at CMS and within the U.S. government.
Clif has held leadership positions supporting all aspects of public sector consulting, from growth strategy to business unit economics to overall profit and loss statements (P&L) to project delivery and gross margin success. He is an agile business tactician who brings a detailed understanding of strategic planning, digital strategy, budgeting, information technology (IT) service delivery, and the impacts of legislation on the always shifting healthcare landscape. Clif has nurtured and grown an extensive network of professionals who recognize his track record of exceeding client satisfaction and company goals: delivery within scope, on-time, on-budget, and within projected margins.
Clif is a recognized thought leader and speaker as a subject matter expert in performance, financial, and technology management. He has provided testimony on these management topics before a congressional subcommittee. He has authored and co-authored numerous articles as well as co-authored the managerial cost accounting standards for the U.S. government.
Clif holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Maryland, a Top Secret security clearance, and is a Certified Public Accountant, Certified Global Management Accountant, and Certified Government Financial Manager.
